MARIE SKLODOWSKA CURIE ACTIONS - INDIVIDUAL FELLOWSHIPS

Funding organisation:Europese Commissie

What?
The Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships of the European H2020 programme offer opportunities for experienced researchers to acquire new skills by moving between countries (and possibly sectors). The individual fellowships provide funding to work on research and innovation in a European country or outside Europe. There are two types of Individual Fellowships: European Fellowships (EF) and Global Fellowships (GF).

  1. European fellowships (EF) take place in EU Member States or Associated Country and are open to researchers either coming to Europe from any country in the world or moving within Europe. Within the EF, researcher can apply for 4 kinds of fellowships:
    • Standard European Fellowships: 
    • The Career Restart Panel (CAR): is dedicated to researchers who wish to resume research in Europe after a career break (parental leave, working outside research,...)
    • The Reintegration Panel (RI): is dedicated to researchers who wish to return and reintegrate in a longer term research position in Europe.
    • Society & Enterprise Panel (SE): is dedicated to researchers seeking to work on research and innovation projects in an organisation from the non-academic sector.
  2. Global fellowships (GF) are composed of an outgoing phase of 12-24 months in a Third Country and a mandatory 12 month return period to an organization based in a EU Member state or Associated Country.

The duration of the fellowship depends on the type of the fellowship:
  • Standard European Fellowship, RI, SE: 12-24 months
  • CAR: 12-36 months
  • GF: 24 - 36 months


Who?
Only experienced researchers can apply for an individual fellowship.
Experienced researchers have, at the deadline, a doctoral degree or at least 4 years of full-time research experience.

  1. For European Fellowships:
    • Standard European Fellowships: Researchers may be of any nationality but must comply with the mobility rule that assumes that the researcher did not resided/worked in the country of the beneficiary for more than 12 months, in the 3 years before the deadline.
    • The Career Restart Panel: Researchers may be of any nationality and must have had a career break in research for at least 12 months within the 18 month prior to the deadline (this means between 13 April 2017 and 12 September 2018). Eligible researchers also comply with the CAR mobility rule that assumes that the researcher did not resided/worked in the country of the host for more than 36 months, in the 5 years before the deadline.
    • The Reintegration Panel: The researcher must be a national or long-term resident of a Member State or Associated Country (long-term resident= period of legal and continuous residence of at least 5 consecutive years). Eligible researchers also comply with the RI mobility rule that assumes that the researcher did not resided/worked in the country of the host for more than 36 months, in the 5 years before the deadline.
    • The Society & Enterprise Panel: Researchers may be of any nationality but must comply with the SE mobility rule that assumes that the researcher did not resided/worked in the country of the host for more than 36 months, in the 5 years before the deadline. The beneficiary must be an entity from the non-academic sector.
  2. For Global Fellowships: The researcher must be a national or long-term resident of a Member State or Associated Country (long-term resident=period of legal and continuous residence of at least 5 consecutive years). Eligible researchers comply with the GF mobility rule that assumes that the researcher did not resided/worked in the Third Country of the initial outgoing phase for more than 12 months, in the 3 years before the deadline.

Application?
The project proposal should be prepared by the researcher in liaison with the host organization (represented by the supervisor) in the participant portal of the European Commission.

The Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) organises an information session on the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowships 2018. This session is organised to support researchers and research organisation in the preparation of their application and takes place on Tuesday 15 May from 08h45-13h00 in Paleis der Academiën, Brussels (Hertogsstraat 1). The programme and more practical information is available on the website of the info session. Participation is free of charge, but you are kindly requested to register online

After this infosession, the FWO organises a workshop proposal writing focussing on applications for the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions - Individual Fellowships. The training will be held by Yellow Research. More information can be found online. This workshop only has limited places, so registration is mandatory on a first come, first served base.
